RR Autograph Auctions Lady Duff-Gordon Titanic | RR Autograph Auctions Titanic Auction | Scoop.it

Original silk Japanese kimono-style full-length robe worn by iconic Titanic First Class passenger Lucy Christiana a.k.a. Lady Duff-Gordon (“Lucile”) as she escaped Titanic into a lifeboat and later aboard the rescue ship R.M.S. Carpathia. The kimono and its relation to Duff-Gordon’s escape from the sinking ship has been described in numerous publications and correspondence. An example can be found on page 151 of The It Girls (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1986), a book on the lives of Duff-Gordon and her sister, novelist Elinor Glyn. Duff-Gordon also describes the kimono in a letter to her sister, which is referenced in the provenance letter included with this lot. A letter written by Duff-Gordon’s assistant, Laura Francatelli, who was saved with her on Titanic, a copy of which was sold by Christies South Kensington on May 16, 2007, (Lot 63) also describes the kimono, the above noting that the kimono was trimmed in black.

RR Autograph Auctions Titanic Auction --Titanic Chair

RR Autograph Auctions Titanic Auction --Titanic Chair | RR Autograph Auctions Titanic Auction | Scoop.it

Exceedingly rare original Titanic deck chair, measuring approximately 37.75 x 22.5 x 54, one of only seven still known to exist. The chair displays expected wear, and its caned seat is mostly present although a center portion is broken with some loss of cane (this could have occurred on impact with the water but is more likely the result of use since the time of recovery). There is some evidence of minor repairs throughout consistent with the entry in the Mackay-Bennett’s logbook relating to repairs made by a carpenter. The headrest supports a metal name holder on the right which is empty, and on the lower portion of the chair is imprinted, “Made By R. Holman & Co. Boston Mass. USA.” This chair was exhibited in the United States in the late 90s and has essentially been out of public view since that time. The lot is accompanied by a detailed letter of authenticity from renowned Titanic author, curator and deck chair authority Steve Santini.
